Learn tips and tricks to help crowdfund your art project. In this workshop, Laura will guide participants through the process of preparing and running a successful crowdfunding campaign, from setting funding targets, to identifying potential backers, to sharing your campaign with the world, as well as post-campaign strategies. Using the platform Kickstarter as a case study, participants will take away strategies applicable to running a short-term campaign to fund a particular project on their preferred crowdfunding platform. Laura Christensen is a visual artist who paints on recovered vintage portraits. In 2019 she ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund her project THEN AGAIN, a book anthology that features thirty-one original stories and poems written in response to her artwork.
Suitable for artists of all disciplines. Artists based in Essex County, MA, will receive priority consideration. (Artists based elsewhere in MA may also be admitted.)
This workshop is being held in partnership with the Essex County Community Foundation.
Select workshop participants will have the opportunity to receive free 1:1 coaching with Laura. Details will be provided after the workshop.
